Andoo Comanche wins Line Honours in 2022 Rolex Sydney Hobart

Andoo Comanche has taken Line Honours in the 2022 Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race.

 

 

 

The 100-ft maxi, skippered by John Winning Jr, crossed the line in 1 day, 11 hours, 56 minutes and 48 seconds.

This is a fourth Line Honours win for the boat, a Verdier/VPLP design, under a third different owner.

She first won as Comanche in 2015 for Jim and Kristy Clark.

The 2017 Line Honours win as LDV Comanche, when owned by Jim Cooney and Samantha Grant, was achieved in a time of 1 day, 9 hours, 15 minutes and 24 seconds, which still stands as the race record.

Cooney and Grant also won Line Honours with Comanche in the 75th anniversary race in 2019.
